Named after the rio (river) Oja in northeastern Spain, Rioja is the country’s leading wine region. A family winery reaching back generations, Mateos makes elegant wines capturing the beauty of that region while paying homage to the family’s wine-making heritage. Aged for 1 year in French and American oak, and a year in bottle, the Letargo is lovely and lively with notes of compote fruit, licorice, and baking spice. It’s a delicious wine and a delectable pairing for stews, grilled meats, and roasts.
